Meet The Author Monday - GN Chevalier

NAME: G N Chevalier


TITLE OF FIRST BOOK:  Bonds of Earth

RELEASE DATE: January 9th

FAVORITE WRITING STORY/SAYING/MEMORY:  I think it would have to be the first time I finished writing a scene and realized I wasn't entirely sure where all the dialogue had come from. I don't have a supernatural theory of writing, but it certainly does feel like the characters are taking over your brain now and then. Interestingly, those lines of dialogue are usually the ones that people quote back to me as their favourites, so I don't question it.

FAVORITE NON-WRITING STORY/SAYING/MEMORY: Thinking about this, it occurred to me that a lot of my favourite memories are tied in with music – either jamming with friends or listening to some of the great musicians I've been lucky enough to see over the years. There are those perfect moments where everything comes together and you feel it right in your gut.

COMFORT FOOD: Hand cut fries and a hot dog steamé with some home-brewed bière épinette (spruce beer) – going right back to my French Canadian roots.

COMFORT READ: I have so many! Basically, I love anything where two lonely people find one another, especially when it has characters  so vividly drawn that you're completely invested in their journey.

YOUR PERFECT DAY: A drive in the country, some good food, good wine, and then back home to curl up on the couch and watch a classic film or read a satisfying book.

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NOW?:  At the moment, a charity story I owe to a very kind friend, but hope to be starting on some research for the next novel soon.
